This is the first phone case I've ever bought that fits perfectly. The design is great. It looks like it was designed just for me. The case makes my phone fit my hand perfectly. If I had to find a fault it would have to be the stiffness of the control buttons with the case on, but even that is an improvement over the bare phone. Without the case the power and volume buttons were much to sensitive and a constant nuisance trying to not depress them accidentally. Do you get the impression that I like this case? You're correct.
Pros: High quality, Durable, near perfect execution
This case is really heavy-duty, which is great for people like me, who drop their phone and keep it in their pocket. It is comfortable to hold (some cases are too bulky), and looks nice too! The only issue I had was that it is pretty difficult to take off, but I got the hang of it after a few times.
So far I am perfectly happy with this case. I like the slim design and classy look. Easy to get in and out of my pocket. Dropped it once and the phone was not damaged at all and the case barely had a scuff on it. Only reason I am not rating 5 stars is putting the case on and taking it off can be a bit of a hassle. Buttons were very stiff at first but after using it a while they loosened up. Overall though I am very pleased with this case. Would definitely recommend.
Pros: High quality, Durable, stylish
Cons: slightly difficult to get on and off

Review 4 for Samsung Galaxy S3 Commuter Series
5 / 5
"Upgraded" from the Defender Series

5 / 5
When I first got my Samsung Galaxy S3, I purchased a Defender Series case for it. I liked that case at first, but then I found it to be too bulky. I didn't like using the belt holster, so I would keep it in my pocket. The friction with my pocket caused the corners to wear out very quickly. I filed a warranty claim, and asked if I could switch to the Commuter. Otter Box agreed, and now I am very happy. It's exactly like the product description says, "provides protection against oopsies and accidents without being too bulky for your pocket or purse". The cover over the power on/off and volume buttons was a little stiff at first, but it does get better after use.
Pros: High quality, Durable, easily slides in/out of pocket
I've had nothing but good experience with the Otter Box for my Samsung 3. If anything in the design is weak, it's the rubber skin and that doesn't seem to last as well as the rest but if it tears, Otter Box customer service will provide you with a replacement and they do it quickly. That's really all that you can ask.
The commuter series is a good product. Very durable. I ordered it for my wifes phone to replace the defender series case that I ordered over a year ago. That case was not a good buy. I ordered it in the teal green/blue and the outer cover stretched out and would no longer fit my wifes phone so I decided to go with the commuter series this time and am pleased with the product. I have a defender series case for my phone (black) and its in as good of shape as the day I bought it. Not sure why my wife's strechted out like it did.
My commuter series Otterbox is very well made. Very good quality material. The protection it provides my S3 is perfect. I would recommend this to me friends with one caveat, the push buttons for the power on and for the volume control have to be pushed extremely HARD to activate those functions. I have the Otterbox installed correctly. This is why I gave 4 stars and not 5.
There is no protection for face of my phone. The rubber buttons on side are very hard/stiff, which make it very hard to push buttons on phone. I do like size and way phone fits, but overall not satisfied with cover. The person that assisted me with receiving a new cover was very nice and helpful. I would recommend the company, just not this cover.
Cons: no cover for face of phone, buttons on side do not function properly
i got this case to replace an old non otter box case and i wish i hadn't got this case. the case is very slippy on the back and have almost dropped the phone a few times now due to it. the case makes the buttons on the side very hard to push almost need both hands to push the power button in
Cons: case is slippy, makes buttons very hard to push
